Nicola Sturgeon

Scottish National Party MSP for Glasgow Southside


There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs were less able to vote in Parliament in certain periods, and this will be reflected by absences in their voting record.

Show more detail
11th May to 2nd June 2020

All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.

2nd to 9th June 2020

The option of online voting was removed, and a number of MPs may have been unable to vote because they were not physically able to attend.

10th June 2020 onwards

The requirements on proxy voting were relaxed, allowing MPs to designate another MP to cast a vote on their behalf.

If an MP votes by proxy, it is effectively exactly the same as if they cast the vote in person and it shows up on their TheyWorkForYou voting record.

MPs are not required to designate a proxy, and may instead pair with an opposing MP to miss a vote. Parliament does not record when two MPs have come to a pairing arrangement, so on TheyWorkForYou, they will both appear to have been absent for the vote.

We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.

That is demonstrated by the fact that, in Scotland, we have 32 officers per 10,000 population, compared with the situation in England—where, of course, the Conservatives are currently in government—where there are just 23 police officers per 10,000...
  • Scottish Parliament: Waiting Times (Cancer) 30 Jun 2022

    In terms of the cancer waiting times, as Anas Sarwar knows, there are two key waiting time standards. I will come to the 62-day one in a moment. The first is, of course, the target of 31 days from a decision to treat to the first treatment starting. That target—again, as is shown in the statistics this week—is being met. Indeed, the median time for treatment starting after a decision to...
  • Scottish Parliament: Aviation Industry (Summer Period) 30 Jun 2022

    The transport minister is in regular contact with the aviation sector and has recently had discussions on services during the summer holidays. Back in May, the minister wrote to the United Kingdom Government about the significant delays at some airports in England, noting that they would concern people in Scotland who planned to travel soon from them. She sought assurances that the UK...
